The Dakota Resources’ volunteer Board of Directors guides our work to carry out our mission of connecting capacity and capital to empower rural communities. In addition to the affiliations set forth below, the board members are active in many community, trade, charitable, educational and religious organizations.
As a successful Independent Sales Director for Mary Kay Cosmetics and co-owner of Brown County Choppers, LLC, Heidi’s ambition, enthusiasm and genuine love of South Dakota provides the Dakota Resources board with unique ideas and the perspectives of a home-based business owner. She grew up in South Dakota and her love of the state led her to pursue a job with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and an internship with the SD Department of Tourism. Her roles on the Dakota Resources board and RuralX Design Team allow her to be part of something bigger, where she can feel like her efforts are directly making a difference. Her experience as a successful home-based entrepreneur is a great asset to Dakota Resources, as working from home is a rapidly growing option for people in rural communities.
